I HAD People


Myths, legends: these are stories that motivate us to strive for greatness; people that inspire us to put forth a greater effort; and events that captivate our imagination filling them with delusions of grandeur.

Once upon a time, the United States of America had numerous foundational myths that largely originated with the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. The exploits of the men who forged a country out of the wilderness and wrote these documents, enshrining rights into the fabric of the early nation, were told from generation to generation with reverence.

The legends and myths that accompanied the founding of this nation were supplanted with a speech that has reached near Biblical status, as if God wrote the words himself and had a mere mortal act as an earthly vessel in the delivery of this address. “I have a dream…”

This speech has come to dominate the belief systems of Republicans and Tea Party participants alike, allowing the suppression of hate facts from ever being discussed for only one who departs from the liturgy of the Holy message by judging one by the “color of their skin” instead of the “content of their character” would dare commit such an egregious sacrilege.

Black Run America (BRA) is under no direct threat, because the message of the “I Have a Dream” speech protects any public refutation of its very existence from coming into play. Only one who dares commit the unpardonable offense of “judging one by the color of skin” would observe that character is noticeably absent from a large portion of particular segments of society.

The “I Have a Dream” (I HAD, henceforth) speech acts as the ultimate suppressant of unsavory factoids regarding Black people, deflecting any legitimate criticism of Black people by placing the moral burden on the person who dares notice the deficiencies in character of a particularly large segment of the Black population.

Only one with no character to begin with would dare look upon “the color of skin” of an individual and then pass judgment on an entire people, even if one can discern patterns that afflict that individual’s entire community.

Disingenuous White Liberals have long enjoyed the fruits of buying into the “I HAD” philosophy, though they give it merely lip service in public and privately stay as far away from those whose character far outweighs any notice of their skin.

Conservatives represent the ultimate “I HAD People” as they constantly invoke this Holy Writ in public and scarcely deviate from the message delineated by the true prophet of God on that hallowed August 28 date.

Like the Pod people in the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers, “I HAD People” seem to lack any distinguishable ideology or primary function except in the continual evoking and espousal of the phrase, “they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Despite the mountain of evidence that Black people have no problem judging by the color of skin (as long as it is Black) and completely disregarding character, “I HAD People” cling to this illusory message of hope and reconciliation.

“I HAD People” are completely unaware that each time they pay homage to the true myth that founded Black Run America (BRA) they bequeath more power to a regime that hates and loathes them. In BRA, character is but an ideal that equates to precious little when opposed with the reality of skin color.

Black people are above questioning in America, simply because noble character has become synonymous with Black skin, thanks in large part to the continued worship of the “I HAD” speech by “I HAD People”.

No amount of hate facts will ever dissuade “I HAD People” from questioning the beliefs of that fabled “I HAD” speech, for such heretical thought would mean ostracism from BRA.

The reality of BRA is that no peace can ever be reached, no amount of concessions will ever justify a cessation to the question “And then?” And worse, “I HAD People” will stunt any true opposition from ever forming.

And just like in Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the pod people (I HAD People) will continually be on the lookout for heretics who dare question the consecrated and divine address known as the “I HAD” speech.

BRA is powered by the divine. Perhaps we could even label it a true theocracy, with the supreme ruler those whose character is beyond reproach simply because the color of their skin is Black.

No greater myth or legend can be found in 2010 America than the "I HAD" speech, and its most devout followers are the "I HAD People" who worship this address and its message with a radical, rabid devotion, despite the enormous evidence that shows Black people barely pay it lip service.

King is the only American who enjoys the nation’s highest honor of having a national holiday on his birthday. There are other days of remembrance such as Presidents’ Day, but no one else but Jesus Christ is recognized with a similar holiday. Does King deserve such honors? Much that has been known to scholars for years — but largely unknown to most Americans — suggests otherwise.

Glenn Beck has become intolerable on this point. i can no longer watch him and the tea party is very suspect on this level as well. my only hope is all of this is a prelude to dismantling the regime of civil rights laws on the pretext of LOOK we arent racist!! heres 100 hours of us on tape worshipping MLK. probably too much to hope for though

I am so tired of the homage paid to MLK, one of the original race hucksters. As anonymous noted, he has the honor of a national holiday on his birthday; all the nation's presidents are honored together on one other day. In the public school's first grade textbook, there are three Americans singled out: Washington, Lincoln, and MLK. My son's Christian school American history book added an entire chapter on him (older son had older edition of same book, and nothing on MLK was in that one). Movement conservatives love to cite him as the highest pinnacle of racial wisdom, and Glenn Beck is following protocol on this issue. It doesn't really matter that all the FBI tapes on him are embargoed for another forty years, or so - you could have videos of him in bed with anyone or anything streaming daily, and BRA would still deify him.

At this point we need to differentiate between neocons and genuine conservatives. Neocons (as a serious reading of VFR makes apparent) are actually liberals with a handful of conservative or pseudo-conservative positions. Since the media is overwhelmingly leftist and considers anything at all to its right to be fascism, neocons get painted as right-wing when they are nothing of the sort. The neocons themselves always follow the media's lead, and are just stupid enough to believe what it says about them.

The Republican Party is the part of neoconservatism; it is not an actual conservative body. Glenn Beck has been wrong far more often than he has been right and I don't hesitate to label him a leftist and an enemy of white America.

A more contemporary MLK rant would start out something like this. I HABS A DERAM. The Tea baggers need a colored front man to deflect racism poop flung at them relentlessly by msm. What better negroe to have in your corner. I mean, its not like Dr. Kang has a say.I don't think that Beck holds Dr.Kang in any more reverence than David Duke does. Don't begrudge the darkies a hero, they have so few.

http://martinlutherking.org/ is a great place to start if one wants to know the REAL "Dr." King.

If you gave Dr. King a magic button, in 1964, and told him it would kill every White person in the world, or even just America, would he have pushed it? Till his fingers broke, or destroyed it?

We will never know. He slept with many White women, but so did Rev. Wright and Louis Farrakhan. Strom Thurmond, segregationist and racial supremacist, had a kid by a Black woman. Racial hatred is no barrier to Black or White men infected by it, sleeping with the attractive women of a race they hate.

On the plus side, King was regarded as a demi-god by White supporters, including the famous letter by the little White girl when he was in the Birmingham jail. On the down side, King was regarded as "an Uncle Tom" by more Militant Black guys like Malcolm X preaching violence and Black rule, not just self-rule. It would also take an extraordinary man to be the subject of brutal attacks, physically, by Whites because of his skin color and activism.

While the exercise is academic, I think there is enough evidence to suggest that the possibility that King would have expressed naked hatred for Whites had he lived, and that he never meant the I Have A Dream Speech, in any way, is not improbable.

We will never know. What was in King's heart, he kept to himself. BUT OTHERS around him have not been shy about expressing hatred of Whites -- Jackson, Andrew Young, etc. My view is that Kings Dream was dead, well before he was. Not the least of which is that Blacks have historical reasons to hate Whites, and that hate provides the only cultural and social unity that Blacks possess.

Where is the evidence of this? I know that due to media and such it wouldn't be on local searches. Please provide evidence of this fact being true or admit you're lying. Thank you.

(Keep in mind I'm referring to your claim of MLK slept with many white woman.)

Hey Dishonest Crusader, do some research, you lazy piece of shit. This information is readily available all over the internet, it's not the job of others to educate you, or to hold your hand, or to change your diaper.

If you believe King never slept with white women, then STATE IT.

Read this work by Michael King's own right-hand man. A very truthful account. That's probably why so many people condemned the good Rev. Abernathy for writing it. I guess we'll find out for sure when the FBI releases Michael King's sealed files in another 20 years. Unless they get resealed then. Again. Why so secretive about a good simple "honest" preacher, one wonders?

Thanks for posting the link to the Abernathy book. Some incredible quotes can be found in that book that shed a light on Michael King that sends the roaches scattering.

A general synopsis of King's life can be found here, along with good list of sources/further reading on the good "Doctor".

As for his affinity for white women?

"During this time, King also rebelled against his father's conservatism and now made no secret about drinking beer, smoking, and playing pool. He became enamored of a white woman and went through a difficult time before he could bring himself to break off the affair."
